GPN-2002-000059 is an elegant black and white shot of the Apollo 17 spacecraft descending via parachute over the Pacific Ocean in 1972. Apollo 17 was the final mission of the Apollo program, missions 18 through 20 were planned but then cancelled to free up funding for the then-in-development space shuttle program. The three astronauts onboard Apollo 17 were returning from a lunar landing that, to this date, still stands as the last one ever conducted.
